A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Nanyang Business School (NBS) and Biosensors International Technologies on 24 November, to explore innovative research projects and jointly conduct talent development initiatives in Singapore and internationally.

Signed by Professor Neo Boon Siong, Dean of NBS, and Mr Simon Li, Group CEO of Biosensors, the partnership will focus on leadership development and research in the area of innovative medical technologies, advanced manufacturing, and cultural intelligence.

Biosensors International is a home-grown leading innovative medical device company with a global presence focusing on coronary drug eluting stent design and development.

“Biosensors’ mission is in line with NTU’s vision of continuous nurturing and export of local talent, creating a positive workforce environment and future leaders. As the CEO of Biosensors, I will provide my full support to this partnership and I look forward to our cooperation bearing much fruit in the coming years”, said Mr Li.

The close collaboration will provide NBS students with high-quality job and internship opportunities in Biosensors’ offices in Singapore, China, and Europe. The first of these opportunities is a three-year leadership development programme called the Accelerated Leadership Programme (ALP), jointly developed by NBS and Biosensors. Conducted between 11 and 13 December 2017, seventy leaders from Biosensors globally participated in this programme.

NBS has been nurturing leaders for business and public service, and advancing global management knowledge and practice for over 50 years. “Today innovation and continuous learning are critically important to survive and grow”, says Professor Guido Guinasso, Associate Dean of NBS – doubling on the belief of the school that responsible and culturally sensitive leadership in business and government is crucial to securing a sustainable future for a globalised world.

“This partnership between Biosensors and NTU is highly encouraging. The focus of Singapore’s universities and public research institutions on continued education and research excellence, when dovetailed with industry needs, continues to reinforce Singapore’s position as a choice location to nurture top local and global talent. We look forward to more of such private-public partnerships to enhance the MedTech talent base in Singapore”, said Ms Ho Weng Si, Director of Biomedical Sciences, Singapore Economic Development Board.
